Synopsis


Flatliners
Despite its occasional lapses into silly self-consciousness, Flatliners is one of the most intriguing and well-constructed supernatural thrillers of the 1990s. A group of brilliant medical students decide to literally play with life and death. They put themselves in suspended animation, electronically inducing a near-deathlike state and then pulling out of it at the last possible moment. Things get hairy when one of the students (Kiefer Sutherland) becomes obsessed with the notion of really dying, the better to experience the Afterlife before being revived--if he can be revived. In her first dramatic starring role (playing a sensitive young lady on a misguided guilt trip), Julia Roberts is very, very good--completely bereft of movie-star mannerisms. Audiences flocked to see Flatliners back in 1990 due to the highly publicized off-screen romance between Roberts and Sutherland. Oh, yes: Kevin Bacon and William Baldwin are in the picture, too. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    A great spooky tale

    The film is a cult classic and it is easy to see why. Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, and Oliver Platt star in this thriller. It is about some med students who want to prove if there is an afterlife by becoming clinically dead and then revitalizing themselves once they have been dead for a set amount of time. The cast starts attempting to one up each other by staying dead longer than the previous person until some strange unexplained events from each persons past comes back to haunt them. The picture and audio quality are great. Unfortunately, there are no special features to speak of at all.

    Medical students begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights. Each has their heart stopped and is revived. They begin having flashes of walking nightmares from their childhood, reflecting sins they committed or had committed against them. The experiences continue to intensify, and they begin to be physically beaten by their visions as they try and go deeper into the death experience to find a cure.

    A movie worth making shelf-space for

    Flatliners is a relatively old movie that holds up to the test of time. It still grabs the viewer's attention from start to finish even with the dated visuals. The collectible steelbook packaging it comes in looks absolutely gorgeous on the shelf, and even comes with a clear plastic slipcover that goes over the steelbook, which makes this sought after by collectors.

    This DVD came in poor condition. The case was broken and wouldn't close, but I didn't know it until I opened it. I went to return it to the store and they would not give me a refund because it had already been opened. I didn't want an exchange for the same DVD because I already reordered it someplace else and for a cheaper price.

    This steelbook is so beautiful! It has a see through plastic slipcover, which has the heart line on. There is a secret message on the front of the steelbook also! Beautiful artwork on the front, back, inside and on the disks. Definitely a great addition to any collection!

    I have long loved this movie. Truly a psychological thriller, it keeps you on your toes. There is a new version that came out. But I highly attest that it is not as good as this original. Keifer Sutherland does an amazing job on this one.

    Most already know about the movie so I will speak on behalf of the packaging. It is a very nice steelbook with a non streaky matte finish with spot glossing. The title is not on the steelbook itself rather it is on the clear removable slipcover.
